WrestlingInc. is reporting that Bray Wyatt is backstage at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey ahead of tonight’s Raw taping.
However, Wyatt has been at a few Raw tapings in recent weeks, so the fact he has been spotted backstage at the arena tonight is certainly not confirmation that the man behind the Firefly Fun House will be returning.
However, today’s date is July 8th, the same date that Bray Wyatt made his main roster debut on Raw in 2013. Many people have suggested that it would suit Wyatt’s character to return to the ring after a lengthy absence six years to the day since he first debuted.
WrestlingInc is also noting that NXT Tag Team Champions The Street Profits are backstage as well for tonight’s taping. There is no word on whether they will just appear in backstage segments as they did last week, or if they will have their first main roster match.
Tonight’s go-home show before Extreme Rules is also boasting a “Double Main Event”, part of which will see Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre team up to take on Roman Reigns and a partner of McMahon’s choosing. The show will also see the return of Rey Mysterio.
